He’s a useful midrange shooter and showed flashes of being effective from beyond the arc, but doesn’t look to force the action or dominate the ball offensively. Next in his development process is working on his ability to move without the ball, as it would allow him to play more seamlessly alongside another primary ball-handler. Coach Geter on Perry: “Xavier is a true point guard that can run a team. He’s a pass-first player who can finish around the basket and makes it look easy. Xavier can shoot from midrange and knock down the open three-pointer. Although a good defender, I would like to see him continue improving.” Perry enjoyed a quality showing at camp and should be a quality contributor for Victory Christian during his upcoming senior season.
